The inaugural weekend of the NY2LA Association featured a number of the nation’s top players and hidden gems. Playing in front of hundreds of college coaches, a number of prospects saw their stocks rise nationally, including Chase Adams of the SYF Players.

Here are 10 stock boosters from session one of the 16U association:  

Chase Adams – 2018 – PG – SYF Players
Adams has a great feel for the game and teammates love to play with his because of vision and passing ability. Able to fit balls into tight windows, Adams makes difficult passes over, under, and around the defense. A skilled ball handler, the 5-foot-8 point guard can get wherever he needs on the floor to make a play. Also an exceptional shooter, Adams takes people off the dribble and creates space off the bounce for his own offense when he needs to take over. 

Orlando Allen – 2018 – F – SYF Players
A high-energy, aggressive forward, Allen makes his presence felt on the court. Allen is a terrific shot blocker. He’s eager to leave his man and make a play at the rim. Offensively, Allen was all over the glass, beating people for rebounds and putting home second chance baskets. Allen jump started SYF, who went a perfect 4-0 in Minneapolis.

Amir Brummett – 2018 – G – All-In Y&R
Brummett just sets the tone with his ability to challenge defenders 1-on-1 or in transition. An in-your-face type of player, Brummett constantly attacks the defense for 30 minutes and never seems to let up. He loves to spark his offense via the defensive end of the floor. Getting after people, Brummett will look for steal opportunities and then it’s off to the races. 

Trever Kaiser – 2018 – F – Minnesota Comets
Kaiser had a couple of breakout performances over the weekend. A skilled back-to-the basket player, Kaiser understands how to pin and seal his man to get easy looks at the rim. Also able to handle and shoot the ball, Kaiser pulls other posts away from the rim and will knock down triples. Kaiser loves to slash from the perimeter and has some impressive quickness for his size. 

Nick Klug – 2018 – G – Wisconsin Swing
Klug made a lot of big plays for the Wisconsin Swing, who went 4-0 in the opening weekend. A clutch shooter, Klug had no issues draining shots when the defense was bearing down on him. Klug can catch and shoot from the perimeter or work his way into the teeth of the defense where he’ll make plays. 

Zach Lattimer – 2018 – SG – MBA Select
We like Lattimer’s ability to create for himself off the dribble. He’s a fine mid and three-point range shooter and knows how to size up his man and make a move to score the basketball. Lattimer has a quick first step which often gives him all the room he needs to get his shot off. He also works hard off screens and plays angles well to free himself from the defense. 

Matt Mims – 2018 – G – Martin Bros.
A terrific shooter, Mims put on an impressive display over the weekend. Mims doesn’t need a lot of space to get his shot off and when he’s feeling it, he’ll light up the box score. Also a terrific passer in the open floor, Mims feels the defense coming and drops off some nice assists to open teammates. Best known for his shooting, if defenses give Mims a look, he’s pulling the trigger. 

Matthew Richmond – 2018 – G/F – REACH Legends 
Richmond is listed at 6-foot-1, but is more in the mold of a stretch wing. A good spot-up shooter from deep, Richmond can catch and shoot or pull up off the bounce. A kid that plays bigger than his size, Richmond will defend in the paint and often draw the matchup of a forward because of his length. Richmond is skilled enough to take post players out on the perimeter and make them uncomfortable with his ability to handle the ball. 

Derek Sabin – 2018 – F – Wisconsin Shooters
Sabin always impresses with his overall skillset. A very versatile player, Sabin can do a little bit of everything. He excels from the high post, able to see over the top of the defense and fire in passes to cutting teammates, or take defenders off the dribble. Sabin can also step out and shoot the basketball from three-point range or play with his back to the basket. He doesn’t take a lot of shots, but definitely makes his presence felt on the game, whether it’s playing a point forward role or getting or cleaning the glass.

Jordan Walton – 2018 – SG – Yanders Law
After Sunday, Walton is definitely a prospect to know. Ending the opening session with an 18-point performance against the Wisconsin Swing, Walton turned a lot of heads with his flashy, but effective play. A terrific playmaker, Walton scored and assisted on a number of his team’s baskets, often pulling out his bag of tricks to make some special happen.
